No complaining is allowed during this relaxing weekend that invites you to enjoy the products from our local wineries. Come and discover why southwest Michigan is famous for being the "Fruit-belt" of Michigan. With multiple, award winning vineyards in the area, a wine tour will be coordinated where campers can be picked up right at the General Store and leave the driving to us for a wine tour, and later returned safely back to the campground. Because no great story ever started with people eating a salad, you'll be sure to have great memories to share with friends and family back home. Additional cost is involved and advance reservation is necessary, so please let us know in advance (via email or phone) that you are interested and planning to participate.
You'll discover the Columbus Day Weekend, which is last three-day weekend for many of our guests, ends with a fun time that includes our nature trail scavenger hunt, crafts, and a Bon-fire in our large group area we call "The Meadow."
Fall camping brings more memories as we enjoy cooler temperatures. Campers are encouraged to prepare their famous chili recipes and meet outside the General Store to enjoy sharing it with other campers in our first annual Chili Cook-off competition. Campers are also encouraged to decorate their sites, and wear fun costumes to participate in a campground parade and "trailer-treating" at night.
We also will bid our guests a fond farewell as this weekend concludes our 2017 camping season.
